Should last a very very long time, as in I wouldn't really worry about it. I noticed that the timing sprocket was all steel also. I mention the sprocket because 30 years ago we bought a new Buick Regal and within a couple of months the car crapped out. GM actually put plastic teeth on the timing sprocket and they broke off. Stupid idea I hope no other manufacturer tried. We replaced it with a steel sprocket and never had another problem in the 9 years we owned it.

I had a Sentra 1995, also with timing chain and steel parts, with more than 250 000 miles on it and never changed timing parts. Nissan engines are not the most powerful, nor economic but they last and require minimal maintenance. The exception is the 2.5 engine with head gasket that blows sooner than expected.
